    Hello,

    Can somebody please advise me.

    I am now in the tweak it till it bleeds frame of mind as I have had my Z1 a couple of weeks. One thing I would like to clarify with an expert or two is contrast/brightness settings.

    I remember reading that contrast should be set at about 65% and brightness should be at about 35% of the total.

    Can anyone confirm this please?

    I realise that its my eye that counts but this would be a good baseline from which to start.


    Thanks,

    Captain Benefit.

    Rubbish :(

    You need a copy of Avia, see here .

    The only way to properly set up any display device.

    Indeed.

    Using the needle pulse tests to set the white and black levels is the minimum that should be done in my opinion, and each DVD player will vary, so you cannot set the projector and expect it to have correct settings for every player you connect it too.

    I've had a few different players on my projector, and used Avia on each one, including HTPC. It helpls reduce background noise as well, which can be a distraction if you have an overly 'live' image.
